SHAME! GOP again tries to stack the primary deck with new registration rules: When the Florida Legislature passed and Scott signed a law that bans candidates for public office from switching parties, they effectively iced out many Tea Party brethren and registered "independents" seeking to run next year in newly drawn districts, said Henry Kelley, the president of the Fort Walton Beach Tea Party and a potential candidate for a Republican House seat representing Crestview.
